    Björk Extends NYC "Biophilia" Residency with Additional Show at Roseland
    Julieta Cervantes

    Björk returned to the New York Hall of Science in Queens last night for the latest performance in her month-long residency in New York City, featuring the music of her latest album, Biophilia. Although she was unable to perform last Thursday's show due to health issues, she was back in fine form at last night's stunning concert. There are two more shows scheduled for the Hall of Science, this Wednesday and Saturday, before Björk brings Biophilia to Manhattan for the remainder of her residency. And in appreciation of her fans’ support, Björk is adding one final show at Roseland Ballroom in Manhattan on Monday, March 5. Individuals who purchased tickets for the February 9 show will be offered these tickets first in a pre-sale to begin tomorrow, Tuesday, February 14, at 10 AM. Tickets will be available to the public at 10 AM Wednesday, February 15. To order tickets then, go to ticketmaster.com.

    All of the Biophilia performances in Björk's New York City residency are performed in the round, with no audience member more than a few yards from the stage, and feature a set of custom-made musical instruments, the award-winning Icelandic female choir Graduale Nobili, musicians Manu Delago and Zeena Parkins, and visuals from the Biophilia Apps with app developer Max Weisel performing on stage. In addition to the live performances, Björk has collaborated with the New York Hall of Science on a three-week-long Biophilia education series featuring interactive science and music workshops for middle-school children.
